The South African Multilingual Dictionary (SAMD) is a groundbreaking publication in the field of basic communication and language enablement. While other similar dictionaries usually contain two South African languages translated from one to the other and back, the SAMD is the first to offer interactive translations for all eleven South African languages in one volume. At a glance, core vocabulary can be translated from one South African language into any other South African language. The ease of use and accessibility of the SAMD make it an exceptionally powerful language tool. The translation of 3 800 English entries into the indigenous languages of South Africa have been performed by leading language practitioners, ensuring quality and reliability.

With English as the cornerstone of this interactive language matrix, the dictionary provides an explanation for each entry, to ensure correct comprehension of the context of each entry. While the SAMD does not claim to be comprehensive, it does strive to cover the basic vocabulary and phrases generally used in everyday life.

This uniquely South African dictionary has been created by South Africans for South Africans and visitors to this beautiful country.
